Gwendolyn went to Austin – The Update
Successfully completed a whirlwind visit in Austin. It was damn hot (and still is). Thank you NY for cooling down for our return. We had lovely friends as tour guides and hosts and slept in the most comfortable bed I’ve ever experienced at the Intercontinental Hotel. Great food, drinks, music and super friendly Texas hospitality.
Paintings will be showing in the windows of St. Vincent de Paul for the next two to three weeks. This vintage boutique and thrift store is located in “SoCo” (1327 South Congress Ave). The first Thursday in August (and every first Thursday of the month) is when SoCo’s big block party takes place so check out the party.
